“IT-ISAC engages a global network of subject-matter experts from the world’s leading technology companies to enhance cross-industry awareness of emerging cyber threats,” said Jungck, chief technology officer of BAE Systems’ Intelligence & Security sector. “The organization is itself a cyber defense force multiplier that is helping to protect global commerce and enhance international security.”
BAE Systems says it shares more information about cyber threats than any other member of the defense industrial base. BAE Systems also made international news in May 2016 for its strategic cyber threat intelligence (CTI) sharing partnership with Fujitsu of Japan.
Jungck has more than 20 years of experience within the IT industry, according to BAE Systems, dealing with information assurance, secure computing, and network security challenges. Over the course of his career, he has served as a CTO of a Silicon Valley venture capital firm and led a variety of IT and cybersecurity businesses. Jungck has earned 26 patents in networking and security, as well as published a book and peer-reviewed works on secure computing and software defined networking.
BAE Systems says it provides intelligence and security services to manage big data, inform big decisions, and support big missions.
